Maryland Restaurant Awareness Bill
Marylanders, help make restaurants more allergy friendly! A bill has been introduced in the Maryland Assembly that would require food allergy training and awareness of restaurant staff. It's being heard in Health Committee on March 11th and we need your help! Please contact your state representative and urge them to indicate their support for the bill!
Ohio Epi Legislation
A bill that would allow schools to stock emergency epinephrine for anyone who needs it is now being heard in the Ohio Senate. HB 296 would allow schools to stock doses of epinephrine and allow school nurses and trained staff to administer the epinephrine to anyone suffering an allergic reaction. Please urge your Ohio Senators to support this legislation!
Some 30 states already have laws like this, and we want Ohio to be next!

Please write your state representative and let them know you support this bill!
Support Food Allergy Research
Urge Congress to Fund More Food Allergy Research! The National Institutes of Health supports a modest level of food allergy research -- even though more than 15 million Americans suffer from food allergies. Tell Congress we need to spend more on finding cures!
Food Allergy Awareness Week is just around the corner, from May 11-17! We need to build support and recognition among policy makers so we can continue to increase public awareness about food allergies. FARE is asking state governors and local officials to issue proclamations recognizing and supporting the needs of the food allergic community. And you can help! Send this message and urge your governor to issue a proclamation!
